Welcome to Casa Miralago

Those wishing to slow down the pace and get away from it all need look no further than Casa Miralago.

Tucked away down a peaceful country lane in the heart of the Andalucian countryside, all that can be heard from the sprawling garden of this beautiful property is birdsong and the drone of honey bees.

The house’s interior effortlessly combines natural Spanish charm with understated contemporary touches. The five double bedrooms are tastefully decorated with crisp white sheets, colourful throw cushions and quirky bespoke art-work, and each come complete with their own private bathroom.

Perfect for a getaway at any time of year, Casa Miralago is cool in the summer thanks to air conditioning in every room, and warm and cozy in the winter months with a large living-room fireplace to gather the family round.

For bigger get-togethers, Casa Miralago is located alongside El Mirador, a 10 acre estate which can accommodate an additional 14 guests. Next door to Casa Miralago is its sister property, Casa Miravista, which can comfortably sleep eight. The two properties are close enough to combine for group use – along with the main estate – but far enough apart to ensure privacy is guaranteed.


Falling away behind double doors set in curving white walls, the vivid green lawns of Casa Miralago are scattered with hammocks, day-beds and sunken benches interspersed with stone planters of wild herbs and cacti.

The 360 degree view dazzles with a azure lakes, purple shadowed mountains and vine-carpeted hillsides beneath an endless sky.

Stone steps lead down from the bottom of the garden – passing through olive, lemon and orange trees and brightly flowering bushes of bougainvillea – and culminate in a ledge carved high above the countryside, complete with a table table, a wood burner and a day bed.

It’s difficult to an imagine a more idyllic spot to sit with a book or watch the sunset behind the mountains.
